Description:

Down Survey:

The Down Survey was a cadastral survey of Ireland carried out by William Petty, English scientist in 1655 and 1656.The survey was apparently called the “Down Survey” by Petty because the results were set down in maps; ‘admeasurement down’ was used; it is referred to by that name in Petty’s will”. (Wikipedia). The name used by the Down Survey was Ardane. In 1641, the owner for this townland was Sir Thomas Blake who was a Protestant and in 1670, the owner for this townland was John Darcy who was Catholic. There was no mention of how much profitable and unprofitable land there was in this townland from Down’s Survey.

O’ Donovan’s (1838):

In 1838, the proprietors for Ardaun East were Earls of Leitrim andCharlemont, Dublin. The agent for Arduan East was Mr. James Fair of Fairhill. The townland was composed of 245 acres, 0 roods and 27 perches according to O’ Donovan’s Field Name Books (1838). The townland is located in the Parish of Ross, Co. Galway. The rent was 18 shillings and 6 pence per acre with no leases. The farms ranged from 2 to 4 and from 7½ to 40 acres. The soil was light with some bog and had swamps in the valleys. The Co. Cess paid 11¾ per acre half yearly. This townland produced middling crops of potatoes and wheat but had very light oats. There was an antiquity of a house called Golden Bay that was close to Lough Corrib. The names of the islands on Lough Corrib were Thonneedhuf, Cleen Ilaun, Reyyaunnagh Village (as per transcribed from O’ Donovan’s Field Name Books, 1838). Below is a picture of an old mill that was situated at Golden Bay, Ardaun East, Galway. This could be the antiquity described above.
